Course content: 

Topic: Capture x Emily Carr: The Photographic Exhibition

This course will focus on the conception and production of photographic projects for an on-campus exhibition during Capture Photography Festival 2022. 
 
The curriculum has two main objectives: the development of individual projects in response to the exhibition's theme and the enhancement of students' professional practice. Regular dialogue with Emmy Lee Wall, director of Capture Photography Festival, will support students' artistic production and provide feedback on critical aspects of a professional art career. 
 
Through group critiques, discussions and one-on-one meetings, we will discuss projects and all aspects of writing – from the initial exhibition proposal to the curatorial statement and individual artist statements – as well as budget planning, research, and exhibition strategies. 
 
Furthermore, visits with guest curators and field trips to in-town photography facilities will deepen the understanding of contemporary photography practices and their relationship to exhibiting institutions.
